Well, nothing is official just yet, but the rumor mill is fully expecting to see a lot of stuff coming out to 'party' soon – including the 2024 or even 2025 Ford Explorer (U625) that may or may not have a (virtual) craving for S650 Mustang styling as many pixel masters were happy to mix and match the seventh-gen pony car's styling with the mid-size crossover SUV's body. Now, though, the good folks over at the AutoYa info channel on YouTube have imagined the CGI looks of the upcoming next-generation or deep-facelifted Expedition SUV.
The larger full-size three-row SUV is yet another logical assumption to be part of the refreshment chain because spy photographers have already spied on the fifth-generation, related Lincoln Navigator, and the imaginative realm of digital car content creators also took care of envisioning its hypothetical looks. However, the resident host and/or pixel master are not so sure that the fourth-generation Expedition has run its course, even though it was introduced in 2017 for the 2018MY, and the 2022MY brought with it a mid-cycle refresh that included the release of the off-road-focused Timberline trim.
Naturally, the latter is also the base of CGI operations for the unofficial depiction of the 2024 or 2025 model year Expedition, either as an all-new generation or a significant facelift. As always, do take all of these renderings (including the color palette reel) with a healthy dose of salt, as nothing is official from Ford just yet. However, it would make sense for the Blue Oval Company to keep the model fresh and perhaps even operate some important powertrain changes.
As a reminder, the current Ford Expedition, starting at $56,075, has to make do with the well-known 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6 gasoline engine, but at least it has three power grades – 375 horsepower for the lesser XLT and Limited trims, 400 hp for Platinum models, and no less than 440 hp for Timberline. But how would you feel if the new one also got electrified in the refresh process? That might be cool, right?
